My Christmas Wish 


I’m getting older Santa

I look around at my decorations 

As I sit here resting

From my Christmas baking.


I smell the familiar Christmas scents

I smile as I remember back

To when my kids were young

What a joy they were for me.


Laughter rings in my ears

Pictures of cookies with lots of icing.

Memories I carry with 

Me year to year.


I’m getting older Santa 

And I want another year

To hear my children’s voices

To see my grandkids happy.


Oh, Santa; I know it’s not really about you

It’s about our baby Jesus’s birth

But I’d so much appreciate it,

If I could have a few more years on earth.


Written by my feelings, 

Terry Shepherd
